Instead of shipping UPS units with FedEx Express or UPS Priority Freight, FirstLightUPS uses Air Cargo to a major airport and then local Courier for the final few miles.
Our FirstLight services gets the product to your local airport within 24hrs for you to pickup. Or we can have a courier pick it up and arrange deliver that same day.
FirstLightUPS also offers AirGroundPlus service to remote locations far from the Airport. Her we ship it to the airport and then have UPS ground pickup and deliver your item usually the next day. As an example we offered a customer in St George UT (2+ hrs from a major airport) AirGroundPlus service. His 70lbs SUA1500RM2U unit would arrive in 2 days instead of 7 days for just $140 in shipping. The rate for traditional FedEx 2 day were $430.
This savings can be tremendous. Look at this week's savings. Traditional express services would have been hundreds more
- 200lbs to San Fran for $200 FirstLight
- 170lbs to Jamacia for $345 Next Day
- 70lbs to Monteagle TN for $98 AirGroundPlus
